ARE YOU CARACAS BOUND?
Last year, teams stayed at the Caracas Hilton, and USA Softball officials say that ISF indicated the Hilton would again be the hotel for teams. Be advised: it is no longer the Hilton. Now, the facility is called the Hotel Alba and is under government-influence, according to our sources in Caracas. Hilton International confirmed it no longer operates the hotel. We are told American businessmen are staying at the Mariott or Intercontinental Tamanaco.
